A short, humorous poem, listing the unattractive qualities and poor personal hygiene of Wilfred Funk. Written by Lawrence Ferlinghetti and read by the poet this work poke’s fun at Wilfred Funk, the famed lexicographer, and columnist for the conservative “Reader’s Digest.” Although the portrait it paints is quite uncomplimentary and is ridden with vulgarities, the seemingly vitriolic nature of the tirade is leavened by an inherent sense of amusement and the over the top nature of the complaints.
